EuroHPC - Europe's journey to exascale HPC
On these pages, the team of Primeur Magazine keeps you up to date on the EuroHPC developments. EuroHPC is a joint collaboration between European countries and the European Union about developing and supporting exascale supercomputing by 2022/2023. The EuroHPC declaration, signed on March 23 2017 signed by 7 countries marked the beginning of EuroHPC.
On September 28, 2018 The EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (JU) was formally established by the European Council. This marks an important milestone in Europe's exascale journey.
On November 6, 2018 the first meeting of the Governance Board was held in Luxembourg.
On January 21st, 2019, EuroHPC JU published its first call: hosting entities for pre-exascale supercomputers. See our introduction: "So you want to host a 250 million euro European pre-exascale supercomputer with EuroHPC funding?"
On February 15, 2019, the second call was opened: EuroHPC opens call for at least two petascale hosting entities - budget 30 million Euro
In June 2019 it was revealed that - no surprise - all three pre-exascale and 5 petascale propososals are accepted.
We did add a - still experimental - timeline displaying the development of EuroHPC during the past two years.
The known candidates to host pre-exascale and exascale EuroHPC systems. All pre-exascale proposals are accepted.
